Re: Cleaning up Baron Hirsch Cemetery, Staten Island? #general

I, too, have contracted poison ivy while doing research at Baron Hirsch
Cemetery on Staten Island. I was trying to crawl beneath my
great-grandmother's tombstone, which had been knocked down (along with many
others). I, too, was quoted an outrageous amount of money for cleanup and
restoration.

Perhaps if there are enough of us in this situation, we can help effect a
real cleanup. The poison ivy can't be left to continue to run wild, and
the condition of that cemetery (which I haven't been to in about five
years) shouldn't be left to continue to deteriorate.

Anyone have any ideas on how to go about this?
